I'd use a bass rod, as they cope best wth this weight.

primo Synchro works for me on a casting court, for fishing any 3-5oz rated rod will cope fine.

rods for 100gms.

Postby castout » Sun Mar 16, 2008 12:42 pm

that was some cast mozza-steve-morris, put down, over 300 yards
his choice of weapon was the m4, must have loads of feel and
power, do you find technique even more critical with these lighter leads
and conditions paramount as well off-course.

regards steve.

Hey stevo did u not try your century carbon metal ? 240 yards you should be able to match that with the 100 gram lead !

rods for 100gms

Postby castout » Mon Mar 17, 2008 11:09 am

hi andy, that was a primo-syncro , 125gms mid 230sOTG, 150gms 240ish
high-reel on the 150, OTG again, bit of a OTG man these days, keeps
them straight down the middle every-time though, would have thought
the carbon-metal would be to much rod for the 100gms,


regards steve.
